AN UPDATE ON ICE STORM SITUATION

Just a quick post from a friend's computer to let everyone know that I am fine. I am back home and do have heat and electricity. I have been without cable t.v., phone, or internet for nine days and no idea of when I will get it hooked back up. They can't even give us a date. I am very lucky to have heat and electric. There are still thousands without both in our state. Yesterday, we had four more inches of snow on top of all the ice we already received. My heat pump went out during the snow storm yesterday but I do have two electric heaters and we got the heat back on this morning. The large tree in the post below this one had to come down and they took it down during the snow storm to keep it from falling on my house because we had high wind along with the snow on Tuesday. It is supposed to be ten degrees here tonight and so many without heat or electric.

Hopefully, everything will be back to normal soon. It is supposed to get above freezing tomorrow and warmer each day.

Thanks to all my blogging friends out there for all the concern and kind comments you have left for me. I hope to be back online soon and will be visiting each and everyone of you so keep the coffee hot!!! Love to all, Judy

Hey Judy! It's so nice to hear from you and to know that, at least, you are warm and have electricity. I'm so sorry that y'all are having such a tough time of it up there. I think we are all ready for winter to make its exit so that spring can come! It won't be long now. I'm sorry you lost that tree, but I think it was probably for the best that you took it down if there was a chance it could fall on your house.

Thinking of you and saying a prayer for all you folks up that way!

Judy, I am sorry that you and your state are having such a rough time with the ice and storm storms. I am happy you are back in your house with heat and electricity. I think of you often and pray that everything will get back to normal very soon. What a shame to lose your beautiful trees. We all miss your postings. Be well

Judy,
I am so glad you are okay. You have been much in my thoughts, and hopes that you have survived the ice and snow up that way. Ky, has been in the news over the past few days. I can imagine how bad it has been to be without so much, especially internet.
Glad you could post on a neighbor's internet.
Love,
Ruby

Hugs,

Judy, I have kept up with the trauma that is going on there in KY, it doesn't sound good at all. Northern Ark is still w/o power, but it appears that KY has been hit worse. Glad to hear you are ok at this point, and I pray also your life will be back to normal soon. We miss you.

Judy, I have been concerned bout you constantly. I went through something similar years ago. Glad you have heat and electric, they are the most important. I am recovering from surgery. When you once again enter the WWW you will see what happened. Take care and hope all is connected soon.

Glad to hear that things are working their way back to normal. Sure makes you grateful for what you have, doesn't it? I don't know about you, but I usually take too much for granted, and a storm like this makes me think twice about how I am blessed.
